Introducing Belkyra

From the makers of Botox™, Allergan’s latest break through, Belkyra™ is designed to dissolve double chins. Many people have heard of Botox™ which softens fine lines and wrinkles and is perhaps the most well-known cosmetic treatment in the industry. Now, Allergan has created a new injectable treatment called Belkyra™ that helps people to tackle one of the body’s most difficult improvement areas: the submental region – under the chin. For those who have excess fat under their chin, chances are good that they’ve spent time researching how to reduce or eliminate it. Everything from strange exercises focused on moving the jaw, dubious herbal remedies, and invasive surgery, some people have tried it all. For a proven solution to reduce or eliminate excess chin fat, countless people are considering how Belkyra™ can help.

What Is Belkyra?

Currently taking the Canadian beauty scene by storm, Belkyra™ (also called Kybella in the USA) is a deoxycholic acid injection and is the first of its kind. It is the only approved non-surgical injectable treatment for improving the amount of fat located under the chin by Health Canada. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found within the body that helps breakdown dietary fat. This fat is then absorbed into the body. By injecting Belkyra™ into the problem area under the chin, the product goes to work to destruct and break down the fat cells located there. Once this happens, the cells are no longer able to store or build fat. This in turn leads to a drop in the amount of fat in the chin.

Is Belkyra the Best Choice?

Everyone’s situation is unique. It is very common for individuals to suffer from fullness under the chin, a doctor can provide very specific information about whether or not Belkyra™ is the best option for you. While proper diet and exercise are always the first recommendation for reducing unwanted body fat, the area under the chin is a different story. That’s because normal diet and exercise is rarely effective enough at removing this extra stored fat. Double chins can occur for many reasons but generally are brought on by factors such as weight gain, genetics, and just getting older. To get rid of a double chin, extensive measures are necessary that go beyond dieting and exercise.
